An Ambitious Endeavor

As you most likely know, I recently competed in Amazon.com’s international writer’s competition. I placed well, and that’s good news, but something even more exciting has come out of it. Throughout the contest period, many of us formed a very unique community of writers. From that, several of us have decided to create a cutting edge publishing company called Totga (long “o”) for “The Ones That Got Away.” The talented authors and business professionals that form our core leadership team live all over the US and in the UK.

We’ve selected a board of directors (I’m treasurer), conduct our business meetings via email and conference call, and are building our website, exploring incorporation issues, and setting up editorial policies, marketing strategies, and all sorts of other things you’d expect publishers to do. All very exciting.

I’ll keep you posted on Totga Books as things progress, but I’d love to hear your initial thoughts. I mean, seriously, how many folks do you know that form businesses with a bunch of strangers they met on the Internet? 🙂
